John Goodman Will Play Make-Up Artist John Chambers in Argo.
Argo, Ben Affleck‘s third film as director, sounds very promising. Based on Joshua Bearman‘s April 2007 Wired magazine article, “How the CIA Used a Fake Sci-Fi Flick to Rescue American from Tehran,” the film features Ben Affleck and Alan Arkin in key roles as part of a team of intelligence agents who are trying to extricate six men from Tehran in 1979. To do this, the agents posed as a crew preparing to shoot a big-budget sci-fi film called Argo.
Now the latest cast member is John Goodman, who’ll play one of the other real-life members of the ersatz filmmaking team.
